Memorable Quotes about booze

I have heard it as "Sir, you're drunk!" "Madam, you're ugly, and in the morning I shall be sober"

Revere Ware? Different?

Those are the ones I have (my mother's, probably from the 50's) and I love them - will never give them up!

Famous foods from your region you find tasty and delicious.

I'm from West Hartford, Park Lane was a go-to, as was Pizza West and Jimmie's. I really miss Greek pizza

Famous foods from your region you find tasty and delicious.

I know what you mean, I have had them so thin that they were just crust, no pork to be found

Famous foods from your region you find tasty and delicious.

CT - Lobster rolls - hot buttered, no mayo

Famous Regional Food you find embarrassing or disgusting?

I'm curious to learn what a St. Paul sandwich consists of - explain please - thank you

Famous Regional Food you find embarrassing or disgusting?

Sloppy Joes are called barbeque in southwestern Ohio, imagine my disappointment when this CT girl expected barbeque and received Manwich

Do you have family/friends who don't appreciate good home cooking?

I know what you mean. I am tired of being served canned, boxed or straight out of the package food. I don't think one has to spend days cooking for company, but a little extra effort is nice. It's to the point that I find ways out of eating at some of these peoples homes, I'd rather go out with them. And, I would like to add, that when I cook for others, I always take into consideration their likes and dislikes. That doesn't happen for me at their place, and they know me well enough. I'm not super picky, just please stop serving me things you know I don't like & then act surprised that I didn't eat it

What foods have you made and then decided store bought was good enough, thank you, based upon cost, time, and taste?

TOTALLY Agree on the pumpkin pie, I've tried many of them and they all taste pretty much the same to me!

What foods have you made and then decided store bought was good enough, thank you, based upon cost, time, and taste?

I think the pre-made mashed potatoes, usually found in the meat dept. are pretty good. I live in OH, and can get Bob Evans brand in the grocery store, I have no problem with them

What foods have you made and then decided store bought was good enough, thank you, based upon cost, time, and taste?

I'm with you, I've made the bag recipe, and it's very good, but most of it ends up in the trash. A little cranberry sauce goes a long way with only 2 or 3 of us.

Points to Ponder

What about cheese? I always picture a forgotten bucket of milk left in a barn that became all thick and nasty

Foodie Survival in Dayton, OH

Are you talking about the one in Harper's Station, on Montgomery Rd? If so, I've been there and loved it.

Do you use a dishrack?

You can use a pants hanger with the clips, I hang my dish mat in the laundry room or the shower

Do you use a dishrack?

Container store is also an actual store, not just online, check and see if there's one near you. They have all kinds of great things

Do you use a dishrack?

I have a double bowl sink (which I hate, but that's another story) and a small dish rack fits down in one side. In my last house, I had a large farmhouse sink, and also, a small dish rack was kept in there. There are also some nice folding racks that you can put away after use. ContainerStore.com has several nice racks, especially a foldable stainless model that just lays over your sink. I believe I saw it first in Real Simple magazine as an item that they really liked

That's why I use the Pringles can, the boxes are so flimsy

Dual-Use Kitchen Stuff

No, I meant baking pans or casserole dishes etc. I know what you mean about not using on non-stick, Pam can ruin them.

Immersion Blender MINIATURE ??

That attachment does an awfully good job, so if you can't find a mini blender, might be worth a try. So sorry to learn of your husband's illness, I hope everything works out for him and you.

Cooking bacon in the oven... why the hype?

I HAVE NEVER EVER HAD A GAS STOVE and have been cooking bacon perfectly for many years

Dual-Use Kitchen Stuff

Spray cooking spray onto your pans while holding them over the open dishwasher door, learned that from ATK, also, use natural corks (not plastic) in the bottom of your potted plants for drainage

Immersion Blender MINIATURE ??

My Braun immersion blender came with an attachment that is basically a tiny food processor, it is powered by the blender itself, which fits into the lid of the little container. I use it to make small batches of salad dressing or sauces.

Frozen Maine lobster tails in shell - how to prepare?

I bought them from Jungle Jim's, Fairfield, OH - I can't imagine him trying to fool anyone about anything, too much good reputation at stake.

Frozen Maine lobster tails in shell - how to prepare?

I have 2 - 5oz frozen tails in shell. The shells are reddish-brown on the edges of the underside, and blackish on the top side, meat is white-ish, sort opaque. Are these cooked? I never thought to ask! Either cooked or raw, how do I proceed? Thaw first, regardless of cooked or not??
Then what? What's a not-too-fussy preparation that you like?
Thanks!

kitchen OWIES!?!

Add a box of butterfly closures to that list, it was the only thing that finally stopped the bleeding when I sliced my pinky really deep. Bled for 2 days off & on until I bought the butterflies

Safe Use of Vintage Aluminum Cookware

As long as your blood test are fine, then you're doing OK, my husband's was going up, and his nurses said no cookware, any food from an aluminum can plus the non-food items.
